Independent artist Pete Teo's sophomore album 'Television' emerged as the biggest winner at the 2007 AIM Awards [The Malaysian Music Industry Annual Awards] last Saturday night [28th April]. The highly acclaimed work won all three categories for which it was nominated [Best Album Cover, Best Music Video, Best English Album] and in the process became the album with the largest haul of awards at the AIM Awards this year.

Among those whom it beat out to win these awards were local industry heavyweights Siti Nurhaliza, Search, Reshmonu and Sean Ghazi. Thus this year's AIM Awards marks the mainstream emergence of possibly the most talked about cult artist in Malaysia in recent years. 'Television' is the first folk-rock album to win the 'Best English Album' award for more than a decade.

Teo's work has been extensively featured by NHK FM in Japan,Channel V in Asia, the BBC World Service, National Public Radio in the USA and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He is also the first Malaysian musician to have been invited to perform at the important South By Southwest music festival in the USA [March 2007]. His award winning album 'Television' is currently being promoted on Dutch radio and Teo will tour Japan, Korea and the UK later this year.

Other than being a musician, Teo is also a sought after actor. He has appeared in numerous independent films that represented Malaysia at international film festivals in the last two years,. These include 'Rain Dogs' [director Ho Yuhang], 'Before We Fall In Love Again' [director James Lee] and 'A Tree In Tanjung Malim' [Director Tan Chui Mui]. His other film work includes writing and performing the title song to Yasmin Ahmad's box office hit movie 'Gubra'.

Does your website have a contact page? I'm having problems locating it
but, I'd like to send you an email. I've got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.
